What is the Canine
Science Forum?


The 1st Canine Science Forum in Budapest in July 2008 confirmed that there is a need for an interdisciplinary forum that brings together scientists with different expertise on Canines. The participants of the first conference expressed their desire to meet regularly, and the Canine Science Forum was decided to be a biannual meeting. The success of the second edition held in Vienna in July 2010 confirms the Canine Science Forum as the main international meeting devoted to the biology, ecology and behaviour of dogs, wolves and related canids.

Aims and scope

The Canine Science Forum brings together scientists with different expertise on Canines. Through enhancing communication between various fields it aims at substantiating canine biology in order to develop it as a major model for biological investigations.

The canine science forum also intends to utilize science as a source of knowledge to promote:

• The consolidation of an interdisciplinary field of canine biology

• A better integration of dogs in our rapidly changing modern society.

• Dog science that develops non-invasive research technologies (Good Scientific Practice).

• The Canine Science Forum is also aimed to spread information on the advantageous roles of dogs in our society and thus increase their well-being.

• Dog science that develops non-invasive research technologies (Good Scientific Practice).
